My Hobby is Crochet Blog celebrates the first anniversary! Thank you for following!

Today I'm celebrating the first anniversary of my blog My Hobby is Crochet! How fast the time flies! Wow! :)

I would like to thank all the followers and friends who supported me during this year!
Thank you so much for your encouragements, thank you for every nice comment, for the “likes“, for sharing and pinning my patterns!
All this are motivating me to keep creating and bringing you more free crochet patterns and tutorials!

Many thanks to my blogging friends (you know who you are :)! I have learned so much from you in my first blogging year!

Special thanks to my crochet friends Rachelle, Jackie and Martha!
These three ladies are lately my number one to go each time I have doubts regarding the text of my patterns. (You know that I'm not a native English speaker! :) )
They are helping me also from time to time to chose a name for my patterns or are giving me many other great suggestions. Not to tell that they are a huge help in my crochet group My Hobby is Crochet on FB!

Also many thanks to my dear friend Snow who contributed with yarns for many of my patterns!

Thank you for everything my dear friends and followers! :)
I couldn't make it without you!
God bless you!
